The whole fish needs to be cleaned of scales, with a knife to remove all the fins, gutted, making a neat longitudinal section on the belly, and be sure to cut off the head and tail, we will not need them at all. We wash the cleaned carcass with cold water, dry with paper towels and cut into many small pieces, thick 3-4 centimeters everyone.

Heat vegetable oil in a pan. Lay out the pink salmon slices in an even layer so that they do not cover each other. If everything does not fit into one pan, use two or cook in several passes. Fry fish over high heat over 2-3 minutes from each side. Turn carefully, first pry a little with a metal spatula, and only then, when you are sure that the fish steak has not stuck to the pan, turn it over. Otherwise, your fish may simply fall apart.
